Tricks for Treats

Tricks for Treats is RSPCA NSW’s annual call for rewards and amusement for the animals in its care while they wait for their furever families. Everyone is encouraged to donate pet-friendly treats and toys in the lead up to 31 October.

Treats are an integral part of our positive reinforcement training methods with the animals. Our staff and volunteers work with all of our dogs and even our cats every day so we go through a lot of treats and toys in our shelters. These sessions are an investment in our animals finding their forever home and reinforce that connection between our people and our animals.

While treats are used as a reward system for training, toys provide comfort and stimulation for animals staying in an unfamiliar environment.

Your treats and toys for dogs and cats can be dropped off at any RSPCA NSW shelter or care centre across New South Wale.
